June 21 (UP) The south has losi a mHJor battle in ths senate for the first time over civil rights legislation, i but lias not yet lost the war. The biggest battles are still to come and probably will tie up the senate during most of July in a filibuster. But even then, the chances that southern Democrats can defeat the bill will be much less bright than in past years. Supports ot the house-approved administration civil rights bill a first-round victory in the 1957 struggle last night. By a vote of to 39, the senate refused to fol- low normal procedure and send I the house bill to its judiciary com- mittee, where a similar measure has been bottled up since last win- ter. The effect of this vote was to hold the bill in the senate, where it can be taken up by a majority vote like any bill reported by a senate committee. The motion to take up the bill is not expected until shortly after the July 4 holi- day. Because that motion will be sub- ject to filibuster, it can, in fact, be carried only if supporters of the I bill can muster tlie Gl votes re- i quired lo shut off debate under the senate's anti-filibuster rule. .Last night's vote did not repre- sent a. true test on the civil rights issue because it came on a pro- cedural question and involved a departure from senate custom. For instance, a number of northern and western Democrats, such as Sens. John F. Kennedy Mike Mansfield (Mont.) and Wayne L. Morse of Orgeon, who favor civil rights legislation, lined up with the southern bloc. They believed the bill should have been referred to committee and an attempt made later to discharge it if the com- mittee failed to act. In all, 11 Democrats and 34 Re- publicans voted against referring the bill to committee; 34 Demo- crats and five Republicans voted for referral. I The vote came after eight hours of debate on a move formally launched by Senate GOP Leafier William F. Knowland. The seuate was functioning under procedure which did not permit unlimited debate or filibuster, so the debate could not be delayed indefinitely. Sens. Paul H. Douglas Hubert H. Humphrey (D-Minn.) and Thomas C. Hennings Jr. (D- Mo.) led the Democratic bloc sup- porting Knowland. Sen. Richard C. Russell quarterback for the house in all senate contests over civil rights legislation, led the fight to get the bill sent to committee. He warned that the Knowland plan could create chaos by setting a prece- dent for senata action on bills without study by committee.

William Henry Harrison was the oldest U. S. president to take office. He was 68. MANORVILLE, N. Y., June Benjamin Hooper fam- ily woke up this week to the morning after a "miracle." In some respects it's been a .headache. Benny Hooper, Jr., 7, fell into a sandy well lioie five weeks ago tonight. The eyes and prayers.of the nation were focused' on tlie yard behind the Hooper's neat little gray house as hundreds of rescuers fought shifting sand and exhaustion for 24 hours. Benny was saved. "How can we possibly hank everybody for what they Mrs. Hooper said today. "We are so happy at what all of them did.'.' But the after effects have be- come more devastating than the destruction of the Hooper garden beneath the feet of the rescuers and the tires of their trucks. There are troubles that were born of pub- lic kindness as well. "It I snt down to think about them all at once, I'd be in Islip right Mrs. Hooper said, re- ferring to a nearby state mental hospital. At the top of the list Is a. bill from Dr. Joseph Kris, who stood' at the toil of the well throughout Benny's imprisonment, directing life-saving oxygen to his sandy prison, and tended him through a subsequent week in the hospital. "I don't know what to Mrs. Hooper said. "If we had the money, we would try to pay it, but you can't get blood from a stone." Hooper, a road worker, brings ?G2 a week. Mrs. Hooper earns an additional working nights as a telephone operator. She has been unable to work since the been too many other things to cope with. She expects to return next .week. A sympathetic public has made gifts to the family. In cash they have totalled less than Mrs. Hooper said. That has made up her salary and just a bit more, she said. There have been two, pay- ments for television appearances. Ono is a trust fund which cannot be touched until Benny is 21. The other the Hoopers gave in grati- tude to the volunteer Mauorville fire department fo'r its part in the rescue, she said. A magazine bought Mrs. Hooper's story tor another ?400, but that hasn't been paid yet. Benny has received boxes of bubble gum, comic books and small toys and three big presents, his mother said, a car that really runs, a bicycle, and a valuable German shepherd dog.

The- insur- ance man has urged that they fence the yard in addition, she said. They haven't decided what to do about that. One other gift the family did .offer of a Pennsylvania resort owner for a nine-day vaca- tion on the house. "Our family doctor told us to go." Mrs. Hooper said, and they did.
